that they plan on fighting this president very aggressively on spending, tax issues, even though they seem to be getting a little bit of round on the debt issue. postponing it for another three months. i do not see a lot of kuba going on here. >> no. we are hearing lots of things. lower court nominees. i talked to a number of republicans. they will fight on issues of spending and debt and debt ceiling. they are not ruling out. democrats have a ten-point advantage, 55-45. you only need 40. there could be a real showdown if the republicans stick together. they say they are not in the mood to, essentially, they say compromise on things that are poor principles for them. they are more geared up to fight and take on some of these legislative battles. for the next four years we will see. we will have another midterm election that could change the makeup of the house and senate again. that will have a big impact on his last two years in office as well. neil: we are just getting a shot at sasha and melia, the president's daughters. they have grown in the last four years. and his mother in law. thi

. >> jared, is there a realistic prospect for something that could respectably be called tax reform or is that simply an exercise to raise a little bit more revenue? >> more of the latter than the former in my humble opinion. it's great they're all getting along today as hampton was telling us, but the idea of very deep tax reform seems pretty difficult given the disagreements up there. on the other hand, you were mentioning this earlier and i agree, the deal will involve both revenues, probably from the tax expenditure side, and spending cuts, and as has been said, the president has significant spending cuts on the table. >> corporate tax reform? >> possibly, but i'm not sure -- that again is going to be lower rate, broader base. i don't know if that's real massive tax reform. >> a second coming out for the obama daughters who have grown up before our eyes. >> people say that the president looks older. those girls look older than they did four years ago, and they, of course, have grown up in the bubble of the white house. >> in percentage terms they've gotten older than he has. >>

and technology to remake our government, revamp our tax code, reform our schools and empower our citizens with the skills they need to work harder and learn more, reach higher. while the means will change, our purpose endures. nation that rewards the effort and determination of every single american. that is what this moment requires, that is what will give real meaning to our freedom. we, the people, still believe in every citizen deserves a basic measure of security and dignity. we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit. but we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future. [ applause ] for we remember the lessons of our past when twilight years were spent in poverty and parents of a child with a disability had no where to turn. we do not believe that anyone country freedom is reserved for the lucky or happiness for the few. we recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives, any one of us at any time may face a jo

is set after americans anxiously watched the fiscal cliff fight at christmastime, worried their taxes would go up. knowing that the parties are torn, polarized, not speaking to each other and the president has a lot of work to begin tomorrow. just a short time, unlike the first time riding high on public opinion and four years ahead of him, everyone else who has to face an election unlike president obama is looking at the elections in 2014 and midterm elections. he doesn't have a lot of time before he is truly a lame duck and he knows that. shepard: so there is work to be done. we begin by swearing him in this morning in washington. it will be quite an event. everybody who is anybody is here. except as you mentioned some from the bush family who stayed back home in texas. our expectation is, that we'll get started here pretty quick. they're going to follow tradition from start to finish. >> yes. it is a day full of much ceremony. there is order to this day. it really doesn't change. there is going to be a luncheon. as you know, 200 place settings were set last night in statuary hall f

with him in ways that they have before. they just voted to increase taxes for the first time in a generation. that's hard for republicans to do. they decided to get off the track of fighting him on raising the debt ceiling. they're still going to negotiate that path. they have to vote, look at the first daughter. reflect the public's desire. cut government spending to compromise while thinking ahead to their own political calendar and trying to push the president where they can, where they think it's appropriate. >> this is as decent a measure as how far we've come in four years ago any. everyone looking at the first daughters, saying how big they've grown in four years. >> they seemed like little girls four years ago and now they are young ladies. >> and notably out of the spotlight, which is just how their mother and dad want. sasha needed a box to stand on last time. no more. >> her older sister is strikingly tall. she moves around the corridors of school. >> and their grandmother, michelle obama's mother is there, also. we don't really get to see enough of her. >> as is h

. we saw him return from his vacation in hawaii to fight congress just now on the bush tax cuts battle as opposed to three years ago, during the health care brawl, he hid away in martha's vineyard while that was exploding around the country. so he's doing those things you need to play to win. he's taking his case to the american people more aggressively. it is not different. when i interviewed him in 2007 on the bus in iowa, i covered him all through the campaign. i interviewed him before he won a single primary. he said to me on the bus in iowa, what i need to do if i become president is take my case to the american people and make them rally congress. >> it sounds, though, as a constant campaign is what we're looking to over the next four years, like a never ending campaign. >> this is what he always believed. going back to 2007, he always believed he needed to constantly rally the american people and campaign. he understood that's how washington works. he just didn't always do it. and he's now realizing he has to always do it. >> david, do you think he's very different? >> as john a

budget was the most important to 13%. only 5% thought tax reform was important. and you may be looking at this poll and thinking, well, what happened to the war in afghanistan? well, there it is, it comes in at 4%, health care at 5% ending the war in afghanistan the most important priority for only 4% of the american people. but we should not ever forget that as we sit here today approximately 60,000 americans are fighting in afghanistan. the president is drawing those troops down but we have a long way to go yet in that war that is now more than ten years old. john dickerson our cbs news political director, he's down on the national mall, john, you see that 35% by far the largest majority of people in our poll think the president needs to be working on the economy. >> that's still the single most important issue for the president, much further down or much smaller percentage want them work on the deficit. really the deficit and getting the budget picture in order, ending these endless confrontations over the budget will do something the white house believes and republicans believe, t

in with his revolution and the second term it was tax reform, immigration reform, the end of the cold war, he was not a right-wing president toward the end except for iran contracourse, do you think this president -- we'll talk about it, but do you think he'll get there on immigration, on tax reform, when all the issues we have been arguing? >> i do think so. i think, you have talked about this, i think ronald reagan's experience was, yes, being a movie actor, but more important was being a labor negotiator. with the soviet union, with the congress, he did what he did with jack warner back in hollywood in the 1940s, was he asked for 100 and got 50. and getting 50 when you're president as we know is a pretty powerful achievement. what is barack obama? in life he's a writer and a professor. and writers and professors think in a more complex term, they reach more new nuance positions, and the president knows at heart he's a storyteller and analyst, that if he wants history to remember this presidency well he's got to make these compromises. >> that's great, at the end of the write-up, it was pre

work hard to get what you want. the government was your ally, not adversaries. it seems to me it is tax and spend. let's not talk about the deficit. let's talk about gun control. these priorities are skewed. host: that was stated in the bronx, new york. we want to show you a video of harry -- talking about presidential artifacts. >> part of it is just about the enthusiasm. are meant to be days of national celebration and national unity. they are not always that way, but they are souvenirs' that .eople may create in the days of george washington, there were bronze buttons and pendants that people could buy things from --that people could buy. i particularly like this, a glass tray, sold on that day. it is to mimic a card. it has generally 20th, 1961, marking president kennedy costs of moving. moving.dy's the idea that people get license plates -- these are good for a day or a week. you can put them on the -- under cars. you are part of the celebration. go to the parade. this happens to be kennedy in 1961. you can watch the crowd up above for those of us who are a little bit shorter. we s
